Check out Brackets Sprint 24

· Web Dev Zone

I don't normally do a blog post for new Brackets releases, but I wanted to specifically call out the most recent release, Sprint 24. From the web site, this release includes:

  • New Quick View: Use your mouse to hover over color, gradient and image values for an in-editor preview.
  • New Quick Docs for CSS: Press Ctrl+K or Cmd+K on a CSS property to view community generated documentation powered by WebPlatform.org.
  • Advanced JavaScript Code Intelligence: New JavaScript code intelligence based on the Tern projet. Increased code hinting accuracy, camelCase support and built-in intelligence for RequireJS and jQuery.
  • Jump To Definition: Instantly locate a function or property definition in your project by pressing Ctrl+J or Cmd+J.
  • Function Argument / Signature Hints: Press Ctrl+Space inside a function call's ()s to see information on its arguments and their types.
  • New Project Panel Design: Visual updates to the project panel.
  • Install Extensions From Toolbar: Install extensions directly from the toolbar.

Here's an example of the Quick Docs support for CSS:

And a shot of the hover in-editor preview:

But let me pretend I'm Kanye for a moment and talk about the feature I'm really psyched about - the new JavaScript code intelligence. Currently it is only supported in JS files (i.e., not script blocks on a page), but it is amazing how well it works. I was working on a Backbone project last week and the difference in this new engine has truly made a difference in my editing. The previous sprint was the first sprint where I moved to Brackets for a majority of my coding. This sprint just cements it.

Remember, you can try this out for yourself, right now, for free, at http://download.brackets.io/.
